What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


People that know me, know i cry at the drop of a hat! So of course writing this, (which is one of the hardest things i will ever write!) the tears are flowing! Which is absolutely no use to anyone! The one thing i can do is run. I am dedicating all my training, gym sessions and races leading up to the Rock n roll marathon in Liverpool in May to my beautiful, courageous sister in law Susan Szumowski.

Susan has terminal cancer and although its not imminent, we don't know how long she has left. My initial reason for crowdfunding was to give her a positive boost and give her a chance to go to Graceland, as she has been a life long Elvis fan, but alas she is too weak to make that long journey!

The money i raise will go towards Susan and her family to help towards any expenses and arrangements that need to be made.

    My first 10k of the year done in 1:05. I'm very happy with that time as I've had a slight niggle in my calf muscle all week. With a strapped up leg (that didn't hurt at all) I ran the 3 laps of Greenwich Park and its very steep hill without too much trouble...things can only get better! Second 10k in a fortnight time! Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. I am so grateful....you are amazing! #runforsusan

I am a 47 year old, mother of 3. I have only been running for 4 years, before that I couldn't even run for the bus! I now got the bug! I have ran a few 10k races and 3 half marathons, one of them being The Great North Run and I finished the Richmond marathon last year.
